That look of terror when someone tells the waiter that it’s your birthday
I hate this shit. DO NOT EVER MAKE SOMEONE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION IN PUBLIC UNLESS YOU KNOW THEY’RE OKAY WITH IT. EVER. Got it? Some of us have serious anxiety issues and something like this can take a birthday from a fun night out to an absolute nightmare that we feel we can’t get away from. It’s cruel to do this to someone who can’t handle it and I promise you, they will not appreciate it.
This is just lovely.
